Now What?
From now through mid-February, we will hear about ways to define our relationship with God and what might help to deepen the faith we share as a community.

Now What?
From now through mid-February, we will hear about ways to define our relationship with God and what might help to deepen the faith we share as a community.

Seek the obstacles to growing in faith. In previous weeks we have reflected on our spirituality by examining our image of God, our image of self, our charisms and our prayer life. This week we take a look at the things getting in the way of growing in our faith. All of us live in the real world and have different commitments, stressors and constraints preventing us from practicing our faith. It is important to acknowledge these obstacles in order to search for ways to overcome them. Take a moment to list what gets in your way. You might discuss them with someone close to you and help each other complete the list. For many of us, time is limited. What takes up the minutes of your waking hours? For some, there are people in our life who either encourage or discourage us from taking the next step in our faith journey. Who are they? We live in a congested area. When does this prevent us from action or participation? Our past is a part of who we are. What in our history might stop us from moving forward? Now What? are the obstacles in your life?
